"I used to wake up with massive headaches. They made me a custom mouth guard and I now have pain-free mornings!"

Relieving migraine headaches with neuromuscular dentistry
Chronic migraine headaches can be debilitating, and have many different triggers that range from neurological disorders to stress and even food sensitivities. Pain emanating from the temporomandibular (TM) joint can be caused by injury, illness, and progressive strain, causing an uneven bite and undue pressure that can also trigger migraines. An examination of the TM joint and bite could be the beginning of a solution that finally relieves your migraines. After documenting your medical history, x-rays, and superficial assessment of the jaw muscles, a treatment plan can be built around the exact cause of the problem. If possible, treatment could include relieving pressure with a custom orthotic appliance, alignment of the bite using necessary orthodontics, or physical therapy.
